The Discovery tool allows you to search across CreatorIQ's robust network of content creators. To make the most of this powerful recruiting database, we recommend that you employ search logic to refine and filter your results. CreatorIQ currently supports Boolean operators, search term Grouping, Wildcards, and Exact Phrase Search.
By default, all terms are optional, as long as one term matches. A search for foo bar baz will find any document that contains one or more of foo or bar or baz. The preferred operators are + (this term must be present) and - (this term must not be present). All other terms are optional.
For example, this query: quick brown +fox -news
- fox must be present
- news must not be present
- quick and brown are optional — their presence increases the relevance
The familiar operators AND, OR and NOT (also written &&, || and !) are also supported. However, the effects of these operators can be more complicated than is obvious at first glance. NOT takes precedence over AND, which takes precedence over OR. While the + and - only affect the term to the right of the operator, AND and OR can affect the terms to the left and right.
Rewriting the above query using AND, OR and NOT demonstrates the complexity:
- quick OR brown AND fox AND NOT news: This is incorrect because brown is now a required term
- (quick OR brown) AND fox AND NOT news: This is incorrect because at least one of quick or brown is now required and the search for those terms would be scored differently from the original query
- ((quick AND fox) OR (brown AND fox) OR fox) AND NOT news: This form now replicates the logic from the original query correctly, but the relevance scoring bears little resemblance to the original.
Multiple terms or clauses can be grouped together with parentheses, to form sub-queries: ((quick AND fox) OR (brown AND fox) OR fox) AND NOT news
Matches Influencers that have fields matching a wildcard expression. Supported wildcards are *, which matches any character sequence (including the empty one), and ?, which matches any single character. Note that this query can be slow, as it needs to iterate over many terms. In order to prevent extremely slow wildcard queries, a wildcard term should not start with one of the wildcards * or ?.
Exact phrase search
Include the search terms in double quotes to search for exact phrase.
- “Quick brown fox jumps over lazy dog”
- “Bass fishing” +Jersey
